#26: Free Therapy?
It’s important to realize that while you may provide emotional support for your friends and loved ones, you’re not a professional therapist. If you’re an empathetic person, many of your friends probably come to you for advice or to vent about their problems. They may not even realize it, but they could be depending on you a little too much.
Venting to you and wanting your advice may be helpful, but you cannot be an endless source of free therapy. It’s not up to you to solve everyone else’s problems. If they truly need more serious help with an issue, they can hire a professionally trained therapist to help them out.
